  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
Hi does any one know if the happ supers ave the same base plate as x arcade sticks ?

 I want to get a set but i don't want to have to drill different holes for the bolts and end up with a cp overlay full of holes.

Yes, although they're the same design with the leaf microswitches....so you may not feel much of a difference.  Many on here don't speak highly of X-arcade sticks so it may still be a nice upgrade.  I haven't tested my x-arcade against a super, though.  I switched to a competition...haven't really put it thru it's paces, yet.

Let us now how they feel if you do the swap.

Did your Competition sticks line up? Are there certain sticks that DON'T line up? I am thinking of replacing my X arcade sticks but want to make sure I don't have to re-drill
Thanks

I'm interested in this as well, if I ever end up replacing my joysticks in the future...(I kind of like the 'pull up and switch from 4way to 8 way' ones over at Ultimarc.

Xarcade and Supers use microswitches, not leafswitches.  And the XGaming microswitches are worlds different than a good Cherry switch IMHO, so I definitely notice the difference.

The Xarcade and Super have the same bolt pattern, I've switched some before.  I also believe the Comps have the same as the super, so they should fit as well, I just can't remember if I ever personally swapped in a Comp to one.  The Supers definitely work though.
first off your and idiot

Man I love the internet, haha.
